Women Students Are in the Minority at the University of Michigan

Nationwide, women make up a solid majority of all enrollments in higher education. But at the University of Michigan, there are more men than women and the gap appears to be increasing.

The University of Michigan reports that this fall there are 42,716 students enrolled at the Ann Arbor campus. Women make up 47.7 percent of the total enrollments. Over the past five years, the percentage of women in the student body has dropped from 48.5 percent to 47.7 percent.

Among undergraduate students, women were a slight majority in 2007. Today, women make up just under 49 percent of all students. At the graduate level, women are 45.4 percent of all students.
